My Review: Alexandrine Marit is a witch. She's always known she was different when she was growing up, but not until she sought out her biological parents did she learn the truth. Her search leads her to Turkey and to the name of her father. She also is given an amulet that a woman claims once belonged to him. Alexandrine wears the talisman all the time.
When her brother, Harsh, suddenly appears in her apartment one day, Alexandrine is stunned. Harsh disappeared ten years ago, and the family believed him dead. He doesn't stay long though, just long enough to let her know that she was in danger because of the talisman, and that he had a bodyguard for her.
His name is Xia and he hates witches. Witches enslave and murder his kind, kin. But even though he hates Alexandrine's father, who recently had enslaved Xia, and despises the fact that Alexandrine is a witch, he is determined to guard her against the forces that would have her dead and the talisman theirs.
MY FORBIDDEN DESIRE is chock full of paranormal entities, down and dirty action, and steaming hot romance. Her first paranormal, My Wicked Enemy, was an exciting page-turner, and this one is even better and hotter!
